Description

The Triumph of Bacchus represents one of the greatest pictorial climaxes within the ducal residence of Sassuolo. Conceived as the main summer residence by Francesco I starting from an existing building, the building was adapted according to the diktats of the Baroque art and architecture. So much the exterior is sober and functional, so much the interior is a riot of stuccos and frescoes, in order to immerse the user in a different dimension, separate and distinct from the city, from the obligations of the official court. The Gallery of Bacchus, full of suggestions from the famous Gallery created fifty years before by Annibale Carracci at Palazzo Farnese, is a celebration of earthly pleasures and of the abundance of the earth, of which Bacchus, god of harvest and intoxication, is the highest minister.
